Take a step back in time with Susan R. Hughes’, The Music Box Series. I enjoyed reading the books not only because of the exceptional stories, but because it was fun to learn about a different era and country, than my own.
Susan is an exceptional writer; take a look at her post and consider purchasing this great set, to add to your summer reading list.
The first three books in my Music Box Series are now available as a boxed set! In this series, a music box brings three generations of couples together, from Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1923 to Vancouver, B.C., in 1957. One reviewer said: “I treasure a story that weaves a tale that lingers long after the last page has been turned and this talented author accomplishes just that.”
I find historical fiction enjoyable and rewarding to write, but delving into a different era from your own requires a good deal of research. The series begins with Sense of Touch, set in Halifax. I’ve only visited the east-coast port city a couple of times. Fortunately, there is a good deal of material available about Halifax at the time I was writing about because of the catastrophic explosion that took place there and served as the backdrop for my story.
